Several of us stayed at once, and we all have great things to say!
1. The pirate house was great! It was very clean, everything was brand new and working properly, and it had everything that we needed for the weekend! The kitchen was fully stocked with tools, small appliances, and utensils. The grill worked perfectly and we had many nice meals using it. The deck was wonderful to eat and hang out on, and the chairs were nice to relax in. The row boat was great for rowing over to the beach. The owners of the place went above and beyond in helping us before and during our stay. They answered all of our questions and were very friendly. Nan drove us and our luggage over to the house in the pontoon boat so we didn't have to lug everything by row boat. They also picked us up on the last day and took us back to our cars. Such a nice thing for them to do. We really had a great time. The property is amazing. A+!
2. My stay at the pirate house was wonderful! Nan and Donard could not have been more accommodating if they tried! We literally wanted for nothing. From simple toiletries to a full kitchen of supplies to an incredibly cozy and cared for house, this stay was exactly what I was looking for. The house gets a lot of attention (because it looks exactly like a damn boat!), but I never felt like passersby were being intrusive in checking out the house or grabbing a rental flier from the box onshore. Everybody around the island was very respectful. My only suggestions would be to take more pictures of the house now that you've done more work on it (it really is a beauty), include a full inventory of what you have at the house, and maybe let guests know that there is a Meijer, Dairy Queen, and some restaurants within driving distance (this might have been in the guestbook...I actually didn't actually read it. Sorry!). Thank you so much for putting so much love into your home away from home! Hopefully we can do another girls' weekend next summer!
3. Nan and Donard so nice and accommodating! They put up with me calling them several times before our stay to discuss pick up/drop off (thank you again!), plus my incessant inquiries about what amenities were available. I shouldn't have been so worried! The house has everything you could want. Plus the attention to detail is insane! When you’re sitting on the deck and looking out on the water, it feels like you’re actually on the deck of a ship. I loved my stay here and would absolutely love to book again next summer!
